    1. You live for yourself only (freedom)
    2. You are not enslaved to commitments (family with kids)
    3. You can adapt to alternative lifestyles (choices)
    4. You are happy-go-lucky (no worries)

    Have you observed this lately?
    Your comments.

    of cos, with money u can buy sex but u cannot experience real love and devotion from a person. Commerical sex last only 45mins a session, after that they take your payment and say goodbye ! It is using money to comfort yourself for some physical relief for time being. Are u sure u want this ?

    fyi, i had a fren who used to believe in this "freedom" life, guess what now ?? he is infected with STDs and is spending lotsa of money on lifetime medications.
    as a result many frens avoiding him... including me

    totally disagree with your comments. do you want to grow old and die alone? or unless nobody wants you sincerely? i feel sorry for you to make such comments.

    well those are all true. but if i had to choose between these freedoms and having someone whom i'm willing to give up all this for...

    (or to put it another way, maybe this just means that you're not actually blessed, but just not lucky enough to have met the right person)

    Best solution =
    Enjoy being single when you are young and free,
    then get married late, so that you have someone to lean on when you are old and sick.


    i dont wish to marry early either. it seems that i have so many things not yet done.

    eh actually i think its very subjective :\
    if u had a good relationship in the past, u'd rather not be single.
    if u had unhappy relationships last time, u'd rather be single.

    so i think like most people said.. there's two side to this single or not issue.

    hehe Bro...sound very Hallmark post card leh. hehe.. I do agree with you in that you are now in a whole new life. But that statement also hold truth in other ways too. You could say a person into his 30s or 40s or 50 who is still single will still be in for a whole new life. As each phase of life differs too. Being married and then divorce ALSO will bring you to a whole new life too. Change of any one's status or phase or thru time of our lifes in incremental is a whole new life. the MAIN THING is...are you happy with that whole new life you choose or did you let others or whatever push you there? heheheh..

    I am certain you did and want that change in that direction but it does not mean it is the only thing ( marry and child rearing) is the only way you can get a whole new life or find the ultimate happiness. I can only find those when I look within myself for what I want, wants I will keep and wants we need to change to get it.

    The five unfotunate familes that lose their sons recently. Well ..the families will be heading for a whole new life without one of them in each family. Sorry for being such a downer on these...was just reading the papers heh.

    Marriage is nothing but just a society pressure..
    True love can exist without marriage too..

    Even after marry, you still can have all this. It about your mindset and how you manage it. I have friends who are married and still enjoy all these. Freedom etc....

    Living together is not an easy thing as individual of us have different living life style, it about compromise and respect.

    I always believe that we can never "change" someone to fit our "requirements".
    Love who he/she is, not what he/she is.

    Have ur fren not complain abt being sandwich between the parents and in-laws..bothered by bringing enough income home for the family..never ever quarrel with wife over little stuff in daily lifes..gets to spend on expensive stuff like hi-fis and cameras not ever being nagged by wife..bothered by children's education..etc....

    If the kind of freedom ur fren has is to do hanky panky stuff outside..then good luck to ur fren..

    If there's a compromise, why choose it in the first place..

    Being singles is not weird, it just that they view differently and they just dun understand why we being singles. As they find joy in marriage, but not those who's marriage failed. I have seen alot.

    Of cos not those hanky panky stuff la, what i mean that they still have time for their own stuff, like hobby, time for friends etc.....

    That always the case, in a way. Find someone is easier than living till the end. How many people are fortunate enough that can live till end with the love ones?

    My dad was a very lucky one to have someone like my mum. That's what i call Love.
